This wonderful musical is based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell and subsequent Richard Attenborough film.
Whistle Down the Wind follows the fortunes of a fugitive caught between the prejudice of adults and the innocence of the young. Swallow, a fifteen year old girl growing up in America’s deep south in the fifties, discovers a mysterious man hiding out in a barn. When she asks him who he is, and the first word he utters are “Jesus Christ”, it’s as if all her prayers have been answered. But as fantasy and reality collide, Swallow begins to discover who she really is and where she is going.
Featuring some of Andrew Lloyd Webbers’s most beautiful and successful songs including “Whistle Down the Wind”, “No Matter What” and “The Vaults of Heaven”.
This is a musical that will give you an evening full of entertainment and not to be missed.
